7afe exhaust manifold top mounted

Recommended Posts

Well the old ihi RB5 is knackered mixing oil in the water and leaking water lines from the turbo ended up ripping it out.. not worth rebuilding it its tiny.

So ive decided on something bigger and better. garret gt2860rs turbo (there was kits for a gt25's but they looked to small) from queenslands MTQ. total cost of $1604 retail with in bonnet turbosmart gated boost controller and garrett boost gauge. will need a new fuel regulator i suspect also.. ( anyone know of any regs suitable that arent overkill?).

Also going to get a custom hi mount exhaust manifold made up as the stocky low mount leaves very little room to work with. its also been dodgied up with a weld across one of the headers thats now leaking air again anyway so its time to get the bin.

(planing to build a 7age for it in the near future with 4age head / forged pistons and 7afe block.)

going to keep the boost low for the time being until new motor is built.

If anyone has done this retrofit with a 7afe please let us know what turbo you used and manifold.

Pics so far of the tear apart more to come. (apologies for the clarity of the shots will take them in daylight next time).
